Caption: Southern constellations. This is plate 28 from the 1661 edition of the star atlas 'Harmonica Macrocosmica' by the Dutch-German mathematician and cosmographer Andreas Cellarius (1596-1665). It shows the constellations of the southern hemisphere, with the southern hemisphere of the Earth shown below the constellations.

This edition was published in Amsterdam by Johannes Janssonius (named at bottom right).
